SINGAPORE – The media launch of the new Samsung S10+ at Resorts World Sentosa marked a great opportunity for fellow iKONics in Singapore to get up close and personal with iKON last Thursday as 100 pairs of tickets were given out for this exclusive event.
This event commenced just hours after the worldwide announcement of Samsung’s new line products.
Fans were seen waiting for hours before the start of the red carpet event eagerly waiting for the 7 boys of IKON to arrive. Both curious tourist bystanders and hardcore fans flocked the two levels surrounding the red carpet area, excited to see the boys decked out in their suave grey and black suits as soon as the septet arrived.
President of Samsung Electronics Singapore, Mr Eugene Goh delivered a short address on the new features of the brand’s new line of products before iKON kicked-off the event with their hit song, Love Scenario.
Their set was accompanied by a fan project planned by the fans as they held up banners which stated: “iKON is our Galaxy”.
The event moved along with a Q&A and fan interaction session as the boys talked about how the new Galaxy S10+ smartphones’ camera New Ultra wide range lens function allows them to easily take group photos now and even took some photos with the crowd. For those who are game junkies, iKON also shared that they will be having a collaboration with Fortnite, as you will be able to get the in-game skin that was inspired by member Chanwoo.
“We love that we get to be back in Singapore to meet the lovely fans, we are honoured to be part of this event organised by Samsung and am happy to be able to meet fans again!” The members answered when asked about being back in Singapore again after their recent 2018 Continue tour last November.
The event ended with iKON finishing off with more hit songs, ‘Killing Me’ and ending it off with ‘Bling Bling’ where fans went down closer to the stage, able to have a really close view of their favourite group.
For those that were unable to be there for the launch event, don’t fret because iKON will be back real soon!
